Arsenal's Longest Spell Without Winning A Major Trophy?

Postby The GFP » May 9th, 2012, 4:20 pm

I was thinking what longest spell Arsenal have gone without winning a major trophy?

So here is my attempt at a list (for League Championships ive done last day of the season as i cant find the list of the dates the titles were won with games left to go)

15,690 - Clubs formation (11th December 1886) to 1930 FA Cup (26th April 1930) *Big thanks to Goonerak ‏@Gooner_AK who pointed out i should include this one to the list!

6,207 - 1953 League Champions (1st May 1953) to 1970 UEFA Cup (28th April 1970)

3,647 - 1938 League Champions (7th May 1938) to 1948 League Champions (1st May 1948) *This includes WW2

3,200ish - 2005 FA Cup (21st May 2005) to next possible trophy 2014 League Cup (16th or 23rd February 2014 )

2,926 - 1971 FA Cup (8th May 1971) to 1979 FA Cup (12th May 1979)

2,846 - 1979 FA Cup (12th May 1979) to 1987 League Cup (5th April 1987)

1,440 - 1994 Cup Winners Cup (4th May 1994) to 1998 League Champions (10th May 1998)

688 - 1991 League Champions (11th May 1991) to 1993 League Cup (18th Apr 1993)

Must say a big thanks to Goonerak ‏@Gooner_AK who pointed out that id got a few things wrong which if id have been any good id have checked my work after doing it! Cheers Andy
